Concrete benchtops can be sculpted into unique shapes to suit your design and are durable enough to withstand the wear and tear of busy commercial kitchens. However, they are heavy and brittle and require a strong foundation to prevent damage. Stainless Steel is highly heat resistant and maintains more heat than other materials. It’s also virtually non-porous so stains like mildew, mould and food debris are less likely to occur.
Stainless steel Super Benchtops are the staple of commercial kitchens but have started to find their way into domestic ones too. They are heat-resistant and hygienic. A light wash with mild soap and a soft brush can remove stains and dirt leaving them looking pristine. Reconstituted tabletop material is beautiful amalgamation of natural components like quartz granules, granite or marble cast into a polymer resin base. They are virtually non-porous and resistant to mould, mildew and oil spills.
Super White Benchtop
Dolomite benchtops are a popular choice for designers and homeowners who want to add a sophisticated look to their kitchen. The material is durable and comes in a variety of shades. Its silvery and white tones add depth and beauty to any practical space. It is also more heat resistant than marble, making it perfect for a benchtop. However, like all natural materials, it’s important to treat your dolomite kitchen benchtops with care. Clean them regularly, wipe spillages as soon as possible and don’t place hot pots and pans directly on the surface.
Bamboo benchtops are a sustainable and environmentally friendly option for kitchens. Made from strips of Moso bamboo and laminated together, they are strong and versatile. Bamboo is non-porous and therefore hygienic, and its neutral wooden colour matches most kitchen colour schemes. Moreover, it is much cheaper than most hardwood options. Engineered stone benchtops are another great option for modern kitchens. They come in a variety of colours and patterns, are extremely durable and affordable. You can even find quartz benchtops that are less expensive than marble, making them a more cost-effective choice for many people.
Super White Dolomite Sydney
Super White Dolomite Sydney is a natural stone that offers the same sophisticated marble look but with added durability. This makes it a popular choice for kitchens, bathrooms and even entryways. Its white colouring is infused with wisps of grey veining to create an elegant statement that complements both light and dark elements seamlessly. This striking bold marble looks incredible when paired with modern fixtures and fittings to create an impressive contemporary look in any home.
Like all natural stones, no two slabs of Super White Dolomite are identical. The intensity of the grey veining, the shade and hue of white and silver and the undulating patterns will differ from piece to piece. However, unlike marble, dolomite is far denser and therefore less porous so it’s also more resistant to moisture damage and is less prone to scratching and etching.
While durable and long-wearing, dolomite still requires some basic maintenance to maintain its pristine appearance. It should be sealed by your fabricator upon installation and re-sealed about once per year depending on the level of exposure to household products and sunlight. To help protect your surfaces, we recommend cleaning up spills as soon as they occur, avoiding placing hot pans straight onto the surface and limiting exposure to harsh chemicals.
